to governor snoozy, there's george w. bush's budget director, rob portman, and then what the "times" refers to as the two dark horse choices, paul ryan, the guy who became nationally famous when he suggested taking away medicare from old people and giving them coupons instead, and also louisiana governor bobby jindal. yesterday, he joins bobby jindal in louisiana for fund-raisers. the beltway press describing him as buzzed about as one of romney's most visible supporters and as a vp short lister. >> i'm bobby jindal, governor of louisiana. >> according to the washington post, bobby jindal's stock is on the rise. the paper extolling the many conservative virtues that make him a possible vice presidential choice, like for example, criticizing president obama. republican voters love that. and fighting with democrats on tv. that's a must. also, he is not old. mossel tav. and there's the rolling back of medical care for the poor and uninsured in his state. maybe that could cancel out romney care in massachusetts? in fact, it would be a huge deal if mitt romney did pick bobby jindal as his runnin
presidential election, george h.w. bush released 14 years of his tax returns going back to 1973. there's no exact number of years that is the standard. but when mitt romney says the president is that you don't have to release much in the way of tax returns, just a couple years will do it, that's not true. the obama campaign released this chart this week showing how many years worth of tax returns the last four presidents released as they campaigned for office. they're putting this out because they think mr. romney has been wrong when he asserted he's following precedent. he released eight years. george w. bush released ten. clinton released 12 years. poppy bush released 14 years. then they added on another guy, the last blue column, that is george romney, who is just a candidate for president. he of course never became president, but he is mitt romney's dad. so what's normal in presidential politics is to release many years of your tax returns. the romney campaign if they cont wanted to could come back and say all those people who became president and my dad released more than five yea
a pulitzer prize and work, writing on georg george h.w. bush. >> and caro, a two-time pulitzer prize winning author and wrote about lyndon johnson, his fourth volume, the passage of power, is set to come out this may, i am pleased to have them here for this important discussion really about men and power, about the power of the office and how those two things come together. i begin with barack obama. what did you go in search of? >> trying to find out to the extent anyone could what makes obama tick, and i think we all know if you support obama or oppose him there is something different about the way he seems or prepares for his reelection from what anyone expected four years ago when he was making his astonishing debut on the national scene, so trying to pars out whether the disappointment in him was inevitable because just a mismatch between what he symbolized in his election and the kinds of problems he had to deal with or whether it was something intentional he has had done right or wrong and trying to answer the question, has he been laying a long-term plan whose subtlety we are only se
judgment would be george w. bush was unusual in being a better second term president than a first term president, i think reagan was worst in the second term and i think clinton worst in the second term the hope is that obama like george w. bush in this way only would learn and continue this elf lucian doris is talkable about, reflecting of things that haven't worked, and i think the strongest lesson of his learning there position is positioning the economic argument which he has done in the last six or eight months in a way that gives him some strength for the election year. >> and yet you suggest in this article that the one thing that doesn't seem to come natural to him is to speak about economic issues. to explain them, to be able to identify with people who are suffering because of contemporary economic issues. >> yes, i had really interesting to interviews with mondale and hart, mondale i talked to him after the tragic death of his the daughter eleanor and something he learned from seeing people on the iron range, and other places how devastating it was when people lost their job
. ronald reagan. let's go -- i mean every single president, george h.w. bush. >> it's a brutal job. they all leave broken. >> i mean look at obama. he's not broken but his hair is graying. they visibly age. >> bill clinton is not broken. >> oh, wait, i forget. bill clinton is not broken. you know why bill clinton is not broken because he refused to leave. >> he won't leave. >> bill clinton still in the hangar, four months later. >> they're broken when they leave but rehabilitate themselves. even nixon, you couldn't leave more broken than nixon but he becomes this age of saddle river, having journalists out to dinner, rewriting history books. even nixon can come back. there is life after the presidency if you handle yourself. >> history is like one of the reasons this is all so much fun and i think so important ultimately, is remember the way the founders described i think washington described the senate as the saucer in which -- >> the tea cooled. >> the tea cooled. >> that's what history. it takes our friend michael, says a rule, you can't write about a president in full until 25
's been very grateful how the bushes have been. president george w. bush have stayed largely on the sidelines. i don't need to play the critic. i think he struck up a pretty good relationship with george h. w. bush. so the relationship with clinton is prickly and complicated. chris: it is an interesting friendship-rivalry. before we break, the famously close relationship between the bush and bill clinton didn't start out so swimingly. clinton was flummox at al gore keeping him at a distance because of the lewinsky matter. but he couldn't resist spouting off. he held out a texas twang and gave his best bush impression. i'm a governor, my daddy was president. i own a baseball team. but al gore was right in using the lewinsky issue. >> now if he decides he can't help himself and starts campaigning against me, the shadow returns. bill: the shadow. we learned when book visited the white house after the recount of 2000, he asked clinton if that shadow offended him and he gave him a pass. and of course clinton became close to george bush 41 and the family. they consider clinton a br
. >> and talk about the presidency, then you turn in and get what joe was talking about with george w. bush who can't think -- says he can't think of one. everyone in their own lives knows that you make mistakes all the time. all of us tell ourselves a story to explain those mistakes. >> john, the whole thing, he wasn't admitting a mistake. he was taking a perceived weakness of him, all fluff and no substance, and turning it upside down. he is saying i'm the guy getting the job you done but sorry -- i don't think there was weakness in that. >> he does believe this is a mistake. he's not playing a game here. >> jump in. >> joe? >> jon meacham, i want to follow up and underline what you said. i remember one time, again because i'm a dork, i was very young at the time, but i remember following the 1976 republican primary campaign. ronald reagan was asked a question out on the campaign trail, his response, i don't know. >> yeah. >> and everybody just sat there for a second and then they started applauding. it was some of reagan's people said it was a -- it was just a special moment that connected h
a column every friday and says, don rumsfeld, best known and remembered as president george w. bush's secretary of defense before and duringite rack war penned 815-page book released titled "known and unknown" it should remain us how little we knew about iraq and how rumsfeld, vice president cheney and others pulled the wool over our eyes. >> that's just inaccurate, in the book as i discuss at some length, think about this. colin powell is the one who made the presentation at the united nations. he probably had more experience dealing with intelligence materials than anyone, including george tenet, director of cia. one of the intelligence elements reported to him at department of state, he spent days workingen it. he prepared a speech for the world which he believed every single word in it, let there be no doubt. president bush believed every word he said as vice president cheney and condi rice and as did i. i think that is -- i don't know quite how to characterize a person who would come to that conclusion when all of the evidence is to the contrary. the congress, republicans and d
in the george w. bush administration. cheney, rumsfeld and colin powell and richard r. medish who had risen with them in sight of the republican party. despite all the differences among the members of the previous administration, they shared some common traits and beliefs. all of them had backgrounds in the military or in the pentagon and this was true of the secretary of state who had been the chairman of that joint chiefs of staff. richard r. medish as it was of cheney and rumsfeld. it's rare to have an administration with the former secretary of defense. and they also shared some common beliefs. america was unquestionably a force for good in the world. a military power was of supreme importance and in fact the disagreements among them were halgand win force should be used for the united states should be saved for the big war were used for house it was in iraq. immediately after obama's election in 2008i decided i wanted to take a look at the democrats over the same time period. many of my books have covered the same time period from the 60's through the present day. and i kind of come ac
conservative. the distinction is all-important. as witnessed buckley's description of george w. bush. "he is conservative, buckley told an interviewer, but he is not a conservative." in other words, he didn't get it. in recent years, there have emerged or re-emerged folks that we call paleoconservatives, national defense conservatives, social and religious conservatives, constitutional conservatives, big government conservatives, and neoconservatives. all trying and fighting for the right to redefine and lead the movement buckley called into being. reminding one of the time that al gore campaigning in milwaukee mistranslated e pluribus unum as out of one many. a few years ago, at the conservative political action conference that mallory mentioned earlier, we honored bill's brother jim and former minnesota senator eugene mccarthy for their 1947 challenge to that era's campaign finance reform. in responding to the toasts, the liberal gene mccarthy stood up and said, you conservatives have had a good run but you are in trouble. because i keep hearing talk of hyphenated conservatives. that's
with a story that i had told him about shortly after george h. w. bush was elected president, his brother called me and said that he was going to run against lowell weicker in the primary in connecticut. that actually the families had lived next door to each other and the kids didn't get along which was the real reason. but he said i need your help because we conservatives have to stick together. and i said prescott, you are not a conservative. you have never been a conservative and you will never be one. if you want my help because i don't like lowell weicker, that's one thing but don't try that one. he said no, you don't understand. now that reagan's been elected we're all conservatives. and that's what i'm talking about because it was more a little thing than a philosophical thing. and a movement of ideas, i mean, this doesn't just take place among conservatives. think of the communist world. by the time the soviet union collapsed, the communist party was like the rotary club, more dangerous than the rotary club, but to find -- you would have been hard pressed to find a communiist in t
for president george w. bush. paul begala is a democratic strategist and adviser to a pro-obama super pac. paul, let's begin with you. as you've heard, the obama campaign was basically saying mitt romney is either a criminal or he's a liar. and romney's campaign is calling on the obama campaign to apologize. saying it's demeaning to the office of the president. do you think, in fact, an apology is necessary, paul? >> no, toughen up, mitt. this is campaigns. this is politics. here's what thomas jefferson campaign said about john adams. they called him a hideous her farm ra diedic character. adams said worse things about jefferson. if you're not tough enough to stand up to stephanie cutter, how are you going to stand up to vladimir putin, i mean, come on. >> even if it turns out to be completely untrue, what they say. >> no, this is completely true. there are signed documents that list him as the ceo. there are other documents that he signed that are sworn that said he had nothing to do with the company at the time. his public financial disclosure documents. one of them is wrong. either he was th
're look at is much more the george w. bush campaign in 2004. >> the accusations that john kerry -- >> reporter: he's talking about the swiftboat campaign. in which john kerry was demonized over what his campaign considered an attribute. his decorated service as a soldier in vietnam. the swiftboat ads, backed by a group of pro-bush veterans, questioned the democratic challenger's conduct in the war, his anti-war activities later and his patriotism. kerry was slow to respond and never very effective in refuting their claims. even though his critics offered little in the way of proof. he lost the election of course. for many democrats, swiftboating became a catch-all term for any unfair, untrue, personal assault on a candidate. >> romney's companies -- >> reporter: but if the president is troubled by the comparison of his bain attacks to the republican swiftboating, he's not showing it. >> when you're president, everything is called into question. >> reporter: romney has been spurred to hit back fast. >> as much as a presidential election is a referendum on the incumbent, the cllen
. after george w. bush left office, the club had its protocols and traditions. he was off the grid and disappeared. he said the current president deserves my sound. it is a very classic decision. obviously his vice president did not take that approach. [laughter] when he finally broke the cover three weeks ago and made some very gently constructive criticism of obama's tax on energy policy, he said but, i don't believe our president, our country should criticize our president. the public role of the president supporting the current one continues. this is a great picture. >> this is an amazing moment. again, we argue about whether eisenhower does or not. johnson is the majority leader. still, a democrat and a republican. the night of the kennedy assassination, johnson is on the phone to eisenhower. he said i've needed you for longtime enemies you more than ever. the next day, eisenhower drives to the white house to see president johnson. he sees kennedy's body lying in state. and he goes to see johnson. he writes out in a legal pad and here's what you need to do. you need to call a
of television and america and his life. a rare interview where george w. bush talks about keeping america great and the cause closest to
proud of him. he's done so much good work in the world. >> george w. bush. >> i want to stay connected to the veteran community. i'm not going to be a public person. this is a rare interview for me. >> this is "piers morgan tonight." >> good evening the first ted turner, a tv pioneer. but, also, a very out spoken man and a rare interview for president george w. bush. if anyone knows about keeping america great is a former american president. >> after 9/11, mon
the evening. but there -- that had never been the republican position. remember, george w. bush ran for president as opposed to what they call nation building which is part of what that's all about. and it was after 9/11 that he was sold on the idea that -- i remember the -- if you remember the line that you often hear, we have to do that because democracies don't make war on each other. and my response was, what about pennsylvania and virginia in 1861? you know what i mean? that has little to do with it in reality. so those are important fights that are taking place, but as buckley would say, if he looked at that, those are fights on the margin because the core of the republican party would fit in with this fusionist kind of view. i mean, if you asked rick santorum, he'd agree with ron paul on more things than he disagrees with him on. >> you talked about how ideas require repudiation of false conservatism. and buckley's ideas led to them throwing out john burch. you mentioned that. john burch society and the ian rands objectivists. but today, a lot of the burcheresque movement in
george w. bush worked on a spree of fighting wars and the national debt doubled on his watch. >> and president obama with be lower if the republican would have allowed the tax cuts to expire the way jerome bush planned for them to expire. >> stephanie: this is just out of the l.a. times. >> i would love to get posted on "the stephanie miller show" website. >> stephanie: i think we can do that. >> i would do. >> i think that would be wolf. slowest growth of government spending send eisenhower. >> stephanie: we should post this. we'll talk more about it when we get back. it's serious. they're playing chicken with the economy. it's called the fiscal cliff. our elected representatives our republicans friends seem determined to plunge us into financial catastrophe for the sake of political gain. >> this is why congress has a lower approval rating that chlamydia. >> stephanie: 46 minutes after the hour. we'll be back am more jump days with john. >> oh come on, you got to admit this is cool. >> it's "the stephanie miller show."

president's son, george w. bush, who is conservative on many issues but lead on this issue. on this issue, or whether it is gay rights, or woman's reproductive rights, can you imagine a similar transformation happening in conservative figures? >> yes, i always say it is inevitable to us, inconceivable to them, and it is our job to shorten the distance between the inevitable and the inconceivable. it takes our work not only inside to maneuver and persuade, but the outside mobilization it is essential, and in almost every issue the american people are ahead of the elected officials. i had the privilege of being in new york city with some colleagues yesterday with bono, who had worked on the aids issue. we started working with bono on that debt forgiveness issue, the millennium challenge in the jubilee year to end that debt that some many countries were oppressed with. that is the initiation of communication with jesse helms, on the debt forgiveness, and we said to bono did you have to be bipartisan, and you will have to reach out to some of these people, and the next thing you know jesse he
reeling and we are today still reeling from devastation of eight years of george w. bush. we were on a brink of a depression and so he felt the timing wasn't right. by the way, whether the number is 250 or 500 or 750 or a million, the republicans are saying no tax increases for anybody. and so the process is in the negotiation process. we're saying 250. the republicans are saying 2 billion. so, you know, this process of saying that there would be no negotiation on any tax increase -- president obama said for every dollar of tax increase, he would grate to ten dollars of budget cuts, no deal. the republicans are sticking their heads in the sand hoping upon hope this line that congressman said that we're going to kill the job creators -- >> jamie: let me ask you this -- >> is holding them hostage. >> jamie: dick, let me ask think and bob, please respond. what is the resolution, then, if you don't -- as democrats continue to push for this, we've stated it in terms of tax cuts and tax benefits, what's the resolution that you could see that could actually pass and help the folks of ame
in the political or philosophical soulmate, fellow social democrat. george w. bush was the president out of the nightmares. barack obama is the president. they say if the nobel committee could design the president from scratching the turnout a lot like barack obama. c. was a bit of a natural. it was a way of saying, from their point of view, saying ding the witch is dead here bright and george w. bush is no longer in the office. he's a new crime of placing a new day. .. that's exactly right. he county use a work -- he said it is a war that is winding down. he defended the afghan war quite strongly and he also said that security of europe have been supported by the blooded american soldier. things like that george martial like things. this one was more hawkish, that's true. >> host: we're coming close to the end, is peace a good idea? did you come away from the book thinking that peace prize makes sense that if it went away tomorrow -- [inaudible] >> guest: it's an important question and i force myself to answer in the yards ward of my -- afterward in my book. i hope there's information i

to make the argument that mitt romney's foreign policy as a return to george w. bush. he left office very unpopular with respect to his foreign policy. obama will argue that he inherited a mess, at a less secure world, and he has made it more secure. mitt romney is advocating the same policies as george w. bush and will try to paint them as being reckless, too quick to use force, and the like. one more direct line of attack that was tried already was mitt romney did make some statement saying that he did not think we should gallivant around the world and spend billions of dollars trying to find one person. he criticized obama's statement that he would go inside pakistan after bin laden. obama will try to truck that out to show that mitt romney is not tough on terrorism. i think he will try to make the argument that mitt romney is trapped in the past and his statements that russia is our number one geopolitical cell was mocked by a lot of people in the foreign-policy establishment, including a lot of republicans. the arms control agreement had very strong bipartisan support. they were kind
